Burmese language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.
Origin and History
Burmese is a Sino-Tibetan language spoken in Myanmar, where the Bamar people, the major ethnic group of the region, are the official language and language. Although the English name of the language is formally recognised as the Myanmar language by the Constitution of Myanmar, most English speakers prefer to refer to the language as Burmese, after Burma, Myanmar's previous name. In 2007, 33 million people, mostly Bamar (Burman) people and related ethnic groups, spoke the first language and 10 million people, mostly ethnic minorities in Myanmar and neighbouring countries, spoke the second language. The Burmese population peaked at 36.39 million in 2014 and was estimated to be 38.2 million as of April 2020.
Burmese, with a subject-object-verb word order, is a tonal, pitch-register, and syllable-timed language, mostly monosyllabic and analytic. It is a member of the Sino-Tibetan language family's Lolo-Burmese grouping. The Burmese alphabet, either the Kadamba or Pallava alphabets, is essentially descended from a Brahmic language.
Among Burmese speakers, especially those living in the Irrawaddy valley, all of whom use variants of Standard Burmese, spoken Burmese is strikingly standardised. From the Irrawaddy River valley comes the traditional dialect of Burmese (the Mandalay-Yangon dialect continuum). Regional variations between Upper Burma speakers and Lower Burma speakers exist mainly in the use of words, not in pronunciation. Throughout the Irrawaddy River valley, slight lexical and pronunciation variations remain. There are small variations in vocabulary and pronunciation between the Upper Burma Mandalay dialect and the Lower Burma Yangon dialect in that area. In other parts of Burma, Burmese dialects vary further from the standard, but they are all more or less mutually intelligible. In formal literature, journals, radio and formal speeches, the high register is used. In film, magazines, casual writing, and daily speech, the low register is used.
